Event Series Event Series (See All)

The changing climate has already had profound impacts on our region’s water and watersheds. Our challenge is to adapt and build resiliency for future generations in the North Bay! On April 8, 2022, the North Bay Watershed (NBWA) engaged with industry experts on the direct and indirect relationships our varied North Bay communities have with weather extremes and ways in which our water suppliers and watershed managers are adapting and planning for a widely collaborative future.

The 2022 NBWA conference was FREE, however, we encouraged participants to consider donating to fund the NBWA small grants and scholarship program.

The North Bay Watershed Association (NBWA) has worked diligently for more than twenty years on water resource issues that go beyond traditional boundaries to promote stewardship of the North Bay watersheds. The NBWA is proud to sponsor and support local organizations and individuals in our regional community through providing selective local small grants and scholarships. The NBWA is always interested to learn about projects and initiatives that inform, engage, and enhance our North Bay watershed communities. Importantly, our projects are encouraged to be developed, piloted, or implemented by a local proponent with a design plan to distribute derivative benefits to the entire region.
